- The first thing you will need to do is to prepare a lot of paper roses. The amount of roses you will need depends on the size of the wreath form you have chosen. To make paper roses you will need to cut out circles from your cardstock paper. Each circle will give you one rose. You can freehand draw circles and cut them out, or use a circle template. After cutting out the circle, cut the circle into a spiral starting from the outside inwards. Now it’s time to roll the cardstock spiral into roses. To do that start rolling the paper from the outside in, keeping the rolled paper as tight as you can, until you reach the end of the spiral. You can now let it gently unroll a little bit until you have the rose look as you like it. Without touching the rose down, apply a small amount of glue to the end of the paper and attach it to the bottom of the rose to secure it. Repeat to make a lot of roses in the same way.
- After making the roses you can proceed to make complete the wreath. You can start by wrapping the wreath form with a wide red ribbon or even spray paint it red, so you can be sure that no white spots will show between the roses.
- Lay down the wreath form and using your hot glue gun, glue a rose anywhere on the wreath; that will be your starting point. Continue gluing one rose after another tightly to each other until you have covered all of the visible wreath form.
